Find out additional information about the Google Imagery offering & how we could potentially enhance your operations.
Google has global ambitions for our consumer aerial imagery - we invest more than any other firm and are likely to have the best quality product. Google Maps is the world’s most accurate, popular, and easy-to-use digital atlas.
Aerial imagery will be provided as a service, so there are no capital costs for hardware & software. Capacity can be scaled to meet unexpected demand without requiring a large initial investment in your own data center. Google takes care of server maintenance, backups and disaster recovery. We also offer a competitive pricing model as compared to custom imagery collects or other providers.
Flexible Consumption Option
We offer flexible ways to consume the data. Customers can access imagery from Google’s data centers and consume the content:
